    Politically, it is a very weird anti-thesis to most of Hollywood: one of those rare multi-million dollar productions that is conservative. For example, the doomsday device Bane wants to use to destroy Gotham was originally developed as a source of renewable energy. By the way, the whole thing is basically an analogy of the French and Bolshevik Revolutions - though this time the revolutionaries are nothing but violent thugs, led by an overlord that sometimes resembles Satan himself. Take that…

    I think this plays better after 3 more years of superhero fatigue. It's still ideologically icky (or murky at best) but Nolan's emphasis on analog feels especially fresh after countless cgi-heavy third acts in other superhero films, and his aggressively humorless approach is actually an advantage here. For instance, the scene where Batman is trapped with Bane is the only time in a superhero film that I've ever felt a tangible sense of dread; the first act of the film…

    Flawed as it may be, this epic capper is a film of great vision and stratospheric ambition, and for that it must be lauded.

    This review reportedly contains spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    There are a lot of things I can't understand about The Dark Knight Rises , a final part of Dark Knight trilogy . First , why did Alfred leave Bruce's house ? Or did he know something bad would happen with Bruce Wayne ? And where did he go when Bane attack Gotham ? The secret that I never know . Second , when Bruce Wayne in prison , he met Ra's Al Ghul . But ... Ra's Al Ghul…

    I sometimes question what is better this or "The Dark Knight'. They have things that are better than the other, and worse things than the other. Ex: This has a weaker direction but is still brilliant, and the IMAX Scenes work more in this movie. Why does it have to be so hard? *sigh*

    Still a fucking excellent movie that is compelling from the Prologue to the end with terrific action, writing, and I think the best directing in the…

    "The Dark Knight Rises" Review: A Legendary Ending to
    One of the Greatest Stories Ever Told
    By Caleb Hamilton
    Originally appeared on MovieViral.com July 20, 2012

    In 2008, many people thought that Christopher Nolan had made the ultimate Batman movie. They thought that if he were to come back and do another, it wouldn't be able to top The Dark Knight. What I've come to realize about this trilogy is, you can't look at each film individually and say one…

    I enjoyed it enough, and it's worth watching to round everything off, but overall it's a disappointing end to the trilogy.

    Tries too hard to be super serious, and is let down by poor structure and heavy handed exposition.

    My ranking for this goes down a little bit more each time I see it. Some pretty great moments and ideas (I liked Bane's past as a member of the League of Shadows) bumping up against stuff that would never make a second draft. For example, the end of The Dark Knight sees Batman being named our "one true protector," which would be true if, after the end of Dark Knight, he didn't decide to mope in his mansion for…

    Fantastic final movie in an incredible trilogy. Huge fan of Nolan's realistic approach to his films.
